These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Aurora also received an impressive long-term care grade with a B in this category. In the last two categories, we awarded the city middle of the pack grades in our nursing and short-term care areas.
